any ed's know what's going on with Salisu?
Heard he's stopped talks with Rennes in favour of talking to Southampton but he's unlikely to get a UK work permit.

{Ed002's Note - Mohammed Salisu (CB) Norwich were very keen on taking the Valladolid centre back in January but will face opposition from Wolves, Southampton and Everton. Manchester United and Valencia have been credited with scouting the player by his club, but they have also said the are in talks with Atletico Madrid. Rennes agreed a fee with Valladolid for Salisu but his agent rejected a move to France in favour of a move to the Premier League. He will see what options are available.}

not sure how many of you knew this already but Martyn Glover is set to take over as Head scout on June 1st. Signed a contract in April but has to wait for his Everton contract to run out.

(don't post if not appropriate eds)

Heard some interesting things about Forster and the GKing situation just lately

Without going into too much detail word is that Forster had been battling depression since he had his knee injury and a combination of a relationship breakup and other issues in his personal life along with Spurs putting 5 past us on boxing day led to him having a breakdown. Which was the major reason for his dip in form

One of the reasons he refused a move in the summer is because he felt he couldn't handle the pressure of being a no 1 somewhere else and the club agreed he could stay (supposedly) on reduced wages.

Along with that he has been the GK who's impressed RH the most during training and he's more open to McCarthy being moved on than Forster.

A very believable (but sad) story. We forget that footballers are all human and actually real people! When we are going through a bad time, splitting up with a loved one, we can hide within our lives, family and friends. but footballers can't. When we have an injury, be that a bad back or something more serious, it affects our lives . but rarely our career. I met a young player recently who was out with a knee problem for many months, he was clearly down about it.
But . personal problems or not . the harsh reality is . Is FF really that good a goal keeper . mmmm.

I did mention this 4 months ago.

Stuart Taylor released. Just don't get what this club is doing sometimes 😭#RossWilsonOut.

any legs on the Balotelli rumours?

1.) 30 Dec 2017 23:40:49
I didn't know there were any? . I've only just got jack sparrow out of my system!

2.) 31 Dec 2017 06:56:12
Not sure how true they are but apparently he followed Southampton on Twitter/ instagram and posted some cryptic stuff alluding to saints

That and some saints “itk’s” reckon we’ve made a bid.

3.) 31 Dec 2017 10:38:01
Not sure about him he differently knows where the goal is but he the man is a loose cannon. His wages would be higher than most.

4.) 31 Dec 2017 10:49:43
Would be worth a go never be a dull moment and he is back in the Italy team could be the big signing that was rumoured.

5.) 01 Jan 2018 06:16:48
Real wild card. If the price is right then I guess it makes sense, provided it’s a fairly low risk deal. Same story as studge or Walcott for me, needs to be low risk high reward.

So that's Salisu and KWP done

Hopefully the rumours of a left footed winger, McKennie and Antonee Robinson are true. We'll be flying next season if so.

1.) 13 Aug 2020 15:36:35
Would love to see Mckennie come to Saints although I don't think it will happen. I thought that Robinson was a left sided defender not a winger.

2.) 15 Aug 2020 09:39:41
Ed’s are we even looking into Mckennie as a signing.

{Ed002's Note - Weston McKennie (CM) wants to play in the Premier League and watched by Brighton, Everton and Crystal Palace, but the smarter scouts should have noticed that Schalke have a far better midfield player in Suat Serder which is where the efforts should be going. Hertha Berlin had a declared interest and plenty of money but the player rejected to move as he wants to be playing European football. He could be sold a project but Schalke are looking for €40M for the player and that makes any transfer difficult.}

3.) 15 Aug 2020 16:36:33
Thank you, so is do we have any possible likely replacements for PEH lined up?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of anyone being "line up". Enquiries were made about the availability of Ozan Tufan and Sanson.}

Best ever premier league away form

Worst ever premier league home form

Wonder if there's a single issue or if there's 32,000 of them. 🤷‍♂️.

1.) 29 Jun 2020 09:53:05
No one at the arsenal game. The home atmosphere can get pretty sour quick granted but it seems to be more of a blip. These fans are the same as any other year. Hopefully now we've hit that magical 40 points they can play with less pressure and with a couple of winnable home games (on paper) it would be nice to see the team squash any feeling they might have about always losing at home.



28 Feb 2020 19:40:44

any known interest from prem teams (not just southampton) in Aaron Hickey at Hearts? Reckon he'd be a decent shout.

{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware.}



22 Feb 2020 14:46:37
Word out of the club is that Valery failed an internal drug test and was suspended by the club for 3 months. That's what his 'virus' was.

1.) 22 Feb 2020 18:03:48
That is EXACTLY what i suggested about 2 weeks ago. To be training so long and not play a game could only have meant that.
Lucky he didn't fail an FA one the ban would have been much longer.

Hi guys,

Watching the game here in the USA really feared for the worst in the first half but what a turn round! Absolutely right no sitting back but going for it, 30 from 30 now and those 3 points were a total bonus,3 weeks to get everyone fit and we are not relying on other teams, great to knock arrogant spurs down and just shows how unlucky we were against Utd. coys.

2.) 10 Mar 2019 02:31:44
Bloody good second half from Saints. I think after the first half the spuds came out thinking that a few more goals were going to come but when Saints upped their game the spuds couldn't find another gear. 2 very good games against top opposition in the last two weeks. Thought that we deserved something from Man U but 3 points today was probably more than everyone expected. Could have done without the 3 week break now really as we're on a roll but hopefully everyone will be fit and raring to go for the last 8 games.

3.) 11 Mar 2019 10:01:04
First game I've watched this season where I feel that we've been the "lucky team" - with Spurs squandering all their chances. They could've easily been 4-0 up at half time. But their decision making in front of goal wasn't great. We came out in the second and played great football, Redmond could've scored 2 himself.
Even though we were lucky, Spurs could've easily had a few red cards. Vertonghen high boot, Walkers-Peters tackle off the ball and Sissoko headbutt.

if this happens we just need to find a player called stuart adam and we might make a commentator cry next season.

If Forster shows the form he had when he first joined or when he returned from injury when he kept 6 clean sheets in a row, or even the form he showed last season, then there's no doubt he'll be no. 1. On his day he's easily one of the top 5 'keepers in the league.

Nothing concrete but Spurs sources are claiming £15mil + add ons Southampton sources are claiming £25mil + add ons, truth is it’s probably £20mil + add ons.

it's 20 million plus performance related add ons for Hojbjerg

12 million bid for KWP has been accepted, saints pushing for him to sign a 5 year deal but not finalised yet.

Todibo is the only semi-realistic one imo. Think he can play in midfield too so might be an option to replace hojbjerg

most of them, if they go, will be off to other sides in the champions league and on far higher wages than we can pay. the only player that won't be is Braithwaite and he'd probably 5th choice here.

That's exactly it, he's happy being the star man here, he's happy with the money the club has offered him, he just doesn't want to be priced out of a big move where he'd be the star man at a champions league team, he doesn't want to go and sit on the bench somewhere else.

Ings is happy at the club he just doesn't want to be priced out of a move should a big club come in for him which is what the sticking point in the new contract is, he wants a release clause, the club don't. No reason he'd definitely go if that release clause was met, just wants the option.

Think Gunn is a decent prospect, just had all his confidence robbed of him in the 9-0 and the few games before that

If Bournemouth sell Ramsdale I wouldn’t mind seeing Gunn go on loan down there, could come back and be very good.

The lads known to have, er, ‘personal issues’ that have stopped him progressing as much as Ralph would have liked - same with Slattery, I wouldn’t be surprised to see both moved on unless they’ve made significant changes.

dunno wouldn't necessarily say his size is the problem, just needs to learn how to use it

Dani Alves and Marcelo are 5ft 8 and they've been two of the very best for the last 10 years. Cafu is 5ft 8 and Roberto Carlos is 5ft 6 and they were both voted in the top 100 players ever.
